Weekly film and cinema education programme with free public access. The project aims to create conditions for increasing the intensity and the dynamic of cultural activities in the Smolyan region; to promote the development of audiences, educational initiatives, professional and critical debates through free display of cultural content; to give the opportunity to meet prominent authors and artists, who will share their experience in theoretical and practical interdisciplinary panels with free access. These meetings aim to develop the creative potential of the participants and to broaden their knowledge in different social cultural aspects.

Attending an event of this scale with a diverse original cultural programme (composed of Bulgarian animation, documentaries and feature films) enriches the cultural calendar of Smolyan, actively contributes to the development of the creative sector in the region and assists the formation of a new generation of educated young audiences, who receive free systematic access to quality cultural content. The regular cultural and educational events will consolidate the place of Bulgarian cinema in Smolyan and will help consolidate the town’s status as a significant regional cultural centre where film art plays an important role for enriching the socio-cultural life of the town.
